Between terminals 2-3, in the taxi area, according to BBC world service.

Edit: T2 baggage claim area.

NBC Miami reporting 3 dead as well, and it looks like the sterile side of the terminal was evacuated onto the ramp.
Tiny, unreadable text leaves ample room for interpretation.

Reporting is all over the place. From 9 injured to multiple dead. Pax still on the ramp, but now going up the jet bridge stairs for re-entry to terminal. Airport now closed though earlier there were a/c taxiing to depart.

My thoughts are with the victims, whether they are DL/airport crew or passengers or family members picking up, Totally unnecessary violence.

Flightaware shows several arrivals in the past 10 minutes, and one or two departures, though none of either in the past 30 (at least) minutes for DL or AC which use Terminal 2.

Too many of these happening. Sad. Prayers to the injured and the deceased.

I normally defer fact checking from law enforcement versus the media outlets. Some new say shooter dead, others in custody.... report first fact check second.. :shakehead:

T2 serves Delta and Air Canada. Canadian tourists are a major tourist base to S. Florida.

Makes one think how long it will take for armed security at all entrances to airports in US/Canada...

Thoughts with the victims and their families and law enforcement.

Arrivals may be stopping, but there are departures. Seems to be close to a dozen aircraft on the taxiway awaiting departure.

FAA issued a ground stop from tier 1 facilities. Delta flights enroute will divert or have diverted as the shooting took place in their terminal and people in the building have evacuated to the apron, closing all gates to aircraft.

Wasnt it Texas that made concealed weapons legally in airports ?

5 fatalities confirmed..so sad

Insanely its the 820th gun violence occurrence in the US and we are at 197 fatalities in just the first 5 f**king days in this year, not 2016, 2017 !...its beyond comprehension to me.

Unless the video feed is old, a/c are moving. A UA 737 just pushed back, WN 73G taxiing.

I'm not really sure. But I'm also not really sure what you're trying to imply. Criminals don't really care about conceal and carry laws. They do what want regardless.

Texas (and perhaps other states) has open carry (not sure if airports are exempted) but TSA won't allow guns past security in any airport

FLL looks to be open for arrivals and departures except for perhaps DL flights:

Looks like many arrivals are in a holding pattern, while some departures are sneaking out.

Ground stop FROM tier 1 facilities means planes from airports in the Miami, Jacksonville and Houston centers bound for FLL cannot take off. It doesn't prevent planes in FLL from taking off and doesn't affect flights to FLL already in the air.

At any rate, the ground stop has been extended to the entire system. Planes currently on the ground with FLL as destination cannot take off, but planes in FLL can take off.

Delta is expecting terminal 2 to remain closed for an extended period of time. All flights in the air are redirected to alternate airports.

Although if a second shooter is confirmed, full airport closure is probably only a matter of time.

Flights are taking off from the other terminals. Are you sure it was a 757? AA doesn't operate one into FLL today.

Eyewitness Mark Lea, near shooter on MSNBC said he shot randomly, didn't say anything and after third clip of maybe 9mm was exhausted dropped gun and laid on ground in surrender position BEFORE first responders arrived. Being interviewed now. Gun still on ground.

With all the thousands of civilians walking across the tarmac/runways, won't it be a challenge to surveil and locate any debris fallen from luggage or people's clothing that could cause harm to aircraft?

This hits close to home... I am due out of FLL airport next week Friday and again next month on a Thursday. I use this airport monthly and specifically, it's normally for a departure on a Friday. Such a sad event going on here...

To the anti-USA, anti-gun nuts posting: The vast majority of us know we have issues, but by some of the logic I've seen here, I guess everyone should avoid Paris, Nice, parts of Germany, Brussels, Istanbul and Ankara (unfortunately this isn't an exhaustive list either)? Not the place for this discussion, but if this is tied to terrorism, this is an issue that affects everyone...

RIP to those who lost their lives.
